Painful
18 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie tried desperately to convey the malaise of an ex-alcoholic/convict returning to a life that was no longer his. It begged to be taken seriously as it valiantly, defiantly reared its head and shook its fist at the prejudice and ill will expressed by a man who had suffered intolerable cruelties. His wrath compounded, yet silenced by a manipulative system unable to distinguish itself as friend from foe.

FALE.

Humanity allow what little merit a movie may have to guide our conscience as we mark it in a one-to-ten scale. Plot holes, acting, pacing... these are concepts absent from the creators minds as this monstrosity bleeds on. It wasn't until late in the evolution of man that the notion of zero widely infiltrated the collective. Zero is either something the creators of IMDb.com have yet to actualize or casually dismiss but, thanks this movie it may have found a reason. It was that bad.
